Effortlessly Elegant Elopement Wedding Dresses

So, the big formal wedding is out and a small, intimate elopement is in! In the days of COVID, plans have changed and lots of couples have decided to keep the guest list small and their stress level down. Elopements are also known as “micro weddings” or “minimonies.” Whatever you decide to call it, it means you will get married without too many (or any) guests. The good news is an elopement wedding comes with some amazing benefits–the chance to share those very special, sentimental moments with your partner (or a chosen few) without distraction and without breaking the bank.

Whether eloping to city hall, a national park or a local urban hotspot (so many possibilities!), there is absolutely no need to settle on your wedding dress. Even though it may not be the wedding day you had originally planned, it is still YOUR big day and still YOUR time to shine in the dream gown you had always envisioned.

WTOO by Watters

Prescott gown–tons of tulle, a delicate cap sleeve, and sheer detailed bodice. We love the silver thread of the floral appliques! The skirt is a little fuller and lots of twirl-worthy.

Ryder gown–Ethereal and flowing, this dress is sure to channel your inner goddess. We love the Lawson Lace bodice inserts for the extra romantic touch. Also perfect for a boho bride!

Rosey gown–Enchanting and captivating, her unique dotted lace is the detail of all details. We love the sexy side split that shows just the right amount of leg (can be made without the split and nude lining on the bodice). She’s pure magic.

Joey gown–Oh-so feminine with loads of soft chantilly lace, delicate straps and plunging neckline. Our favorite detail? Her effortlessly draped signature bow at the back that goes for days.


Nesryne gown–The perfect combo of clean crepe and fanciful floral embroidery. Modern meets boho at its finest. We adore the side cut-outs, and if you like the front, wait till you see the back!

Bonnie gown–with her low neckline, an even lower back, and flirty strappy style, she is the definition of swoon-worthy. We love the Abrazo stretch lace for a look that is as comfortable as it is beautiful.


Style 2305–Sleek and chic, a perfect example of modern meets traditional. We love the sparkling beaded belt that gives the perfect touch of hollywood glam. (Removable tulle overskirt also available!).

Style 2308–a true statement gown! No bling required. The long sleeves, high neckline and full skirt with horsehair hem give a regal feel while maintaining that effortless look. Our favorite detail? The pockets, of course!
